Product details

"The hottest, hippest harpsichord in the world today" said one critic of the best selling Bizarre or baRock Vol.1. Melbourne harpsichordist Elizabeth Anderson has returned to the studio for the long awaited sequel, bizarre or baRock vol. 2.

Barock is a German word, which originally meant 'bizarre'. The word 'rock', incidentally, was used early in the 20th century as a euphemism for sexual congress and later became a generic musical term. It was not until early in the 20th century that the word Barock was used in Germany to describe the music of Bach's time. When Sir Charles Burney first used it in his German Tour diary (1733), he explained that it meant 'course and uncouth', much as writers then used the word 'Gothic'. In architecture, the word Barock was applied from about 1867 to the highly-decorated
style of the 17th and 18th centuries in Austria and Germany. Therefore, to apply the term Baroque (French/English spelling) with all its shades of meaning is to extend the boundaries of Baroque music far beyond the dates that have traditionally been set for it. This CD explores 'Baroque' harpsichord music across four centuries: it ranges from Peerson's early programatic cameo, through traditional Baroque repertoire by Bach, Vivaldi, Couperin, Telemann and Purcell to the music of jazz greats, Alec Templeton and Dave Brubec

Press Quotes

“Elizabeth Anderson's latest compact disc may well prove startling. Certainly, it is one of the most delightfully entertaining recitals on the instrument I've heard in a long time.”

— Neville Cohn, Oz Arts Review website

“... a reminder that classical music doesn't need to be serious all the time ... Elizabeth Anderson marries her taste to a good sense of humour and delivers a fascinating program that ranges from Bach to boogie.”

— Tony Way, The Age Greenguide
